NaBloPoMo : Sister Susie

Are you looking in the mirror sister Susie what do you see.

The face  of sinner or angel which would you be.

Do they pay for what you give them  or do you give it for free.

Tell me sister Susie what do you see.

 

You  dance  for them early  you dance for them late

Why do you dance  for them, this was never your fate.

Do they pay for your dancing  or do you dance  for free.

Tell me sister Susie  what do you see.

 

Your make up is harsh now ,your make up is dark.

When you look in the mirror do you see those dark marks .

Does it hurt you Susie when off you they spark

Do they pay when the hit you or do you let them hit you for free.

Tell me sister Susie  what do you see.

 

Will you leave here Susie will you ever be free

Will you walk out of here Susie do you hold a key.

Do they pay you to stay here or do you stay here for free.

Tell me when you look in the mirror sister Susie  what do you see.

    Strong imagery for a tough lifestyle. We all want to believe we have choice, but sometimes it’s an illusion, especially to those who feel trapped. Reality or a matter of perspective? Well done!

    What a heartbreaking poem about the life of a helpless victim of life. Tragic details of everyday sufferings of these victims are heart wrenching and make us appreciate our blessings of life. Very touching post Willow.

    I really do like the way you write, Willow. I am positive you’ve improved since your first ever posts. And I’m so glad you now clearly are being left alone to do it 🙂

    I really feel, always, you are in the female characters you write of.
